Canon has announced a digital camera with a 12x optical zoom lens. The PowerShot S3 IS is a successor to the PowerShot S2 IS, and is built around a six-megapixel CCD.
The PowerShot S3 IS’s zoom lens is the most powerful found on any Canon camera. It features an ultra-sonic motor for fast and quiet zoom operation and has an ultra-low dispersion lens element to reduce chromatic aberration in telephoto shots. It features an optical stabilizer to reduce camera shake, which is even more important at extended zoom.
